Andrew Stewart (June 11, 1791 – July 16, 1872) was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.

Andrew Stewart (father of Andrew Stewart) was born near Uniontown, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Washington College (now Washington and Jefferson College) in Washington, Pennsylvania. He studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1815 and commenced practice in Uniontown. He was a member of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives from 1815 to 1818. He was appointed by President James Monroe as United States attorney for the western district of Pennsylvania and served from 1818 to 1820, when he resigned.
